Flask challenge - not passing

Your register() view needs to create an instance of the SignUpForm from forms. It should also render and return the register.html template. You'll need to import render_template. In the template's context, name the SignUpForm instance as form.

Bummer: Didn't get a 200 at '/register'.

from flask import Flask, g
from flask.ext.login import LoginManager

import forms
import models

app = Flask(__name__)
app.secret_key = 'this is our super secret key. do not share it with anyone!'
login_manager = LoginManager()
login_manager.init_app(app)

@app.route('/register', methods=("GET", "POST"))
def register():

    form = forms.SignUpForm()
    return render_template('register.html', form=form)


@login_manager.user_loader
def load_user(userid):
    try:
        return models.User.select().where(
            models.User.id == int(userid)
        ).get()
    except models.DoesNotExist:
        return None


@app.before_request
def before_request():
    g.db = models.DATABASE
    g.db.connect()


@app.after_request
def after_request(response):
    g.db.close()
    return response

Hi Andrii,

I'm not a Flask expert (yet!) and I'm not sure which challenge you're doing, but as far as I know, HTTP methods in app.route need square brackets:

@app.route('/register', methods=["GET", "POST"])
# instead of
@app.route('/register', methods=("GET", "POST"))

Otherwise, if it still doesn't work, I'll defer to someone who knows more about Flask!
